The Sunrise Association / Sunrise On Wheels / Sunrise STEAM Shack (New York) CHILDREN WITH CANCER PARTICIPATE IN INTERNATIONAL HOUR OF CODE
NY, NY… When a child has cancer, they spend extended time in the hospital and out-patient clinics. Missing a tremendous amount of school due to their compromised immune system, they often fall behind their peers.
In 2006, Sunrise Day Camp-Long Island became the first day camp in the world for children with cancer and their siblings, free of charge. While Sunrise has brought back the magic of childhood, a new program was introduced this summer — The Sunrise S.T.E.A.M. Shack --to help build children’s futures beyond cancer.
As a participant in the Hour of Code -- a global movement reaching tens of millions of students in 180+ countries -- the Sunrise Association is rolling S.T.E.A.M. Shack activities into NY metropolitan hospitals, including Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and Cohen's Children's Hospital, through its innovative Sunrise on Wheels program, that provides a day filled with Sunrise camp fun to children awaiting treatment in pediatric oncology units of participating hospitals. Volunteers wheel a rainbow trunk bursting with toys, games and activities right into many of our affiliated hospitals and change what could have been a bleak and depressing day into a day of camp fun!
Now, children can keep up with their peers and and will have the opportunity to build their own computers and learn to code on Kano computer kits. Inspired by a challenge from a six-year-old, Kano creates computer and coding kids for all ages, all over the world. Its mission is to make technology as simple and fun to create as it is to consumer. Joanna Bersin, Kano’s Head of Education, said, “Kano is excited to support the Sunrise on Wheels program and empower these children with creative computing.”

Sunrise Day Camp-Long Island is a proud member of the Sunrise Association, whose mission is to bring back the joys of childhood to children with cancer and their siblings world-wide, through the creation of Day Camps, Year-Round Programs and In-Hospital Recreational Activities, all offered free of charge.
